New Entrant enrolments follow the same procedure. However, there are usually more places available at this level each year. Four year old children can come to our “Four Year Old transition visit” mornings held for three consecutive Tuesday mornings leading up to their 5th birthday (in Term time) from 9am to 11am. On this day they join with the other junior children for “Discovery Time” – a play based rich learning time.
All New Entrants require a copy of their birth certificate and vaccination certificate as part of the enrolment process.
We aim to have a maximum student / teacher ratio of 1 to 25 and we manage this through our enrolment scheme. Local families have automatic enrolment right of entry but we do take children from outside our zone. Places may be available throughout the year in selected age / year groups.
Prospective families living outside our zone are encouraged to contact the school on 874-8880. We recommend bringing your child with you to visit the school. It is helpful to bring school reports and any other information that would help us find the best class for your child.
After the visit your application is considered by our enrolment committee and we place your name on the waiting list. As soon as there is a vacancy you will be notified.
At the time of enrolment, families can choose to join our Bus Transport Scheme. Families in this scheme can have their child transported to school on our own school bus. We complete three runs each day. We pick up in Hastings, Havelock North, Te Hauke and Pakipaki.
If you choose to use this scheme we ask for a donation amount depending on how far we transport your child. Joining the scheme is voluntary and families are free to transport their own children to school if they prefer.
